Default Teams Big Ben has not beat

I was thinking in offseason mode for a bit and it came across my mind that for a fifth year QB # 7 has really accomplished allot.
I was trying to come up with all the teams that Ben has not beaten yet in his carrer thus far and had the list at 3 teams. Thats right only 3 teams...
(I am including Regular season & Playoffs results).

I have the list as Raiders, Packers, and Falcons not the most feared competition.

Can anyone validate my list as correct ?

Also Ben can knock off then Raiders and Pack this year to make it only the Falcons.
Pretty impressive, and I bet this is a very tough accomplishment to say you have beaten all teams in the NFL at some point.

Just Sayin

But remember, Tom Brady did it on the day he was conceived.

We beat the Packers in '05 - was Ben out that game?

[edit]: Just looked it up. Charlie Batch played that game.

How many quarterbacks in the league at the moment can claim this achievment? Brady and Manning, I would bet they've both completed this task, being on successful teams for longer, anyone else?

Pretty impressive if true, and he can take two of those teams down this season, and if Falcons can somehow make superbowl and we can too he could clear that list!

Found this article from 10/07:

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3078473

Brady needed only the Redskins - they played 10/28/07.
Manning needed only the Panthers - they played 10/28/07.
Farve needed only the Chiefs - they played 11/04/07.

All 3 won. Nobody else has beat 31 teams (None have beat 32).

Considering that you play teams in the other conference only once every four years, I would think it is safe to say that it takes even the very best players seven or eight years - if then - to beat every other NFL team.

Here's when Big Ben got his first victory against each team:

2004: Browns, Bengals, Ravens; Dolphins, Jets, Pats; Jags; all the NFC East.
2005: Titans, Texans, Colts; Chargers, Broncos; Bears, Vikings, Lions; Seahawks
2006: Chiefs; Saints, Bucs, Panthers
2007: Bills; 49ers, Rams
2008: Cardinals

Pretty amazing, wins against twenty different teams in his first two years.

The only teams left are the Raiders, Packers and Falcons.

He'll get his shot at the Falcons in 2010, barring injury - the NFC South is on the schedule next year, and the Falcons will be coming here, unless of course they meet in the Super Bowl this year.
